Garganey....Breech pool!

A call mid morning from Ivan from the RSPB  telling me of photographable Garganey, had me racing round to the North Wall.  Ivan was there and so were the Garganey but, and a big but, they had moved to the far bank of the pool and were asleep!

A very heavy crop of the Garganey  pair with Teal on the right

A close up of  a male Blackbird up the lane...just look at those eyes!
Early afternoon a walk to the Lagoon revealed a superb Firecrest at the western end in company with several Willow Warblers....a quick dash back for the camera but it was feeding very actively and constantly on the move and I failed miserably to capture a single frame before it vanished! I resorted to Willow Warblers and Dunnocks!

Treading water!
Typical light legs and yellow feet.

There's nothing dull about the humble Dunnock!

Great Crested Grebe to the hairdresser
...several Swallows over the Lagoon this afternoon.
